THIS '1ST THAT
By Sarah M. Harvey
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: “You
can make more friends in a week i
by getting yourself genuinely in- i
terested in other people than you •
can in a year by trying to get (
other people interested in you.” . . i
SUNDAY, DAD REIGNED AS i
KING FOR A DAY . . . and as we .
looked around us and saw theji
honors being bestowed on FA
THER, we were happy in the
realization that no one could be
more deservant of such honors
than many of the fathers whom
we knew. . . . We were happy to
join m the observance of FATH
ERS DAY . . . the day envisioned ,
and promited some 45 years agoji
by a mother, Mrs. JOHN BRUCE
DODD of Spokane, Washington, ]
to “emphasize Father’s place in
the home, the safe-guarding of the
marriage tie and the protection!
of womanhood and childhood”.1]
. . . FATHERS DAY in Jackson :
was one when actions spoke vol- h
umes; when a gift from his son,
daughter! or his wife, told Dad,
wordlessly, the things that were'
in their hearts. . . . And FATHER (
NEEDS TO BE TOLD, as much,
or even more than Mother does (
on Mothers Day. . . rather needs,
to know that his children appre-i
ciate the sacrifices he’s made for .
them; the hours he’s worked that;,
they migh play; the strength he’s -
allowed them to lean on in time }
of trouble and the guidance of
fered out of his experiences. . . ]
We were happily privileged to ]
let our father know in a small <
way, just w’hat he means to us. . . ]
FATHER’S DAY AT CENTRAL ,
METHODIST on Sunday was ob-L
served with a Program sponsored j
by the ladies of the church. . .|j
On arriving all men were ushered (
to the seat of honor in the center ]
of the church. . . . During the j ]
service scripture was read and j
prayer offered by Mrs. Carrie! <
Dean; a beautiful poem read by|
Mrs. Odessa Patton, the Respon-j.
sive Reading conducted by Mrs. i
. . :
Vera Smith Lucas and an inspir
ing Father’s Day Message brought ]
by Mrs. Annie Mae Mosely. . . j
Appropriate music was rendered (
by the choir under the direction;,
of Mrs. Jeanette Hunt. . . Adding,,
much to the music was the duet-j
rendered by "Boots’ Thames and j
the little Oliver girl. . . before the t
close oi me services, individual j
gifts coming from their families (
were presented to many of the r
Fathers by Mrs. Matilda H. Wil-jj
son. ... A gift for the youngest
Father at Central went to Mr. i'
Louis Turner . . . one to the oldest j
Father went to Mr. Wm. Jackson
c
... all in all, Father's Day at '
our church was a most enjoyable
event. . . j,
I
THE GARNETT MEN TREAT
US TO DINNER . . . From Church 1
Service we went to the home of 1
our friend, John Garnett on Cohea •
Street to share with John Seryor,
John Junior and Kenneth (our 1
God son) a delicious Father’s Day 1
Dinner. . . Prepared by John Sr. 1
this is an annual event in the (
lives of this family. . . a day I
when this very fine young father 'a
takes time out and prepares all I
the good things to eat that he|I
knows will please his two sons. '
. . . Others sharing this delight- j i
ful occasion were Mrs. Myrtis
Gregory and our young sister, 1
Janice (Essie Lee) McNeamer. . . ^

tion of all qualified voters in all
elections, locally, and on a state
and national level; to stress the
preparations that must be made
within the race to enable our
masses to take advantage of the
opportunities of First Class Citi
zenship.
The speaker stated that “sen
sational news reporting, with lit- ,
tie or no thought as to accuracy; (
efforts to destroy the truth, to lie ]
outright, to sell the race for daily (
bread, to arouse and encourage
hatred between individuals, groups
and races should certainly not be ]
a part of the role of the Missis- \
sippi Negro Press during this time 1
of crisis or at any other time.” c
Mrs. Harvey told of the strug- c
gles of the Mississipppi Negro s
Press, and some of the factors js
that prevented it from giving the!
type of service that would satisfy t
all segments of the state’s popu- t
Lation. . . She told of the finan
cial struggles of the Mississippi
Negro Press and this fact helped
to determine its role at all times.
In closing, the speaker express- v
?d a desire to see in Mississippi ^
me large Negro:owned Publishi
ng Company, out of which can si
ism, junt ZO, I 7JO

that will fulfill its true role in

... A paper that will serve all
the people ... a paper that will
champion the rights and privi

to obtain First Class Citizenship;
i paper that will encourage full
aarticipation of all citizens in all
ahases of our government and
nore than anything else, a paper
hat will stand for freedom of
hought and action, not only in a
crisis, but at all times.
During the question and answer
